United Methodist Women




United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of women whose purpose is to know God, to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.  The UMW participates in focus groups, unit meetings and special study programs that invite public participation. Other special activities throughout the year include a summer tea with a program, and spring potluck luncheon.  Watch the "Upcoming Events" on this page, and the monthly calendar on the home page for upcoming activities.
